We Reminisce: Michael Jordan (44) vs. Glenn Robinson (42) Shootout

There’s Bird vs. Dominique in ’88, Pierce vs. LeBron in ’08, and in between those two, MJ vs. Big Dog in ’98. In a random regular season game in Chicago, Mike and Glenn Robinson traded buckets to the tune of 44 points for MJ and 42 for Glenn. Then, after Jordan and Robinson put on their show, Dennis Rodman (21 rebs) did his best Ray Allen impersonation, dropping a couple of threes in the fourth quarter.

    This has been the best thing that I have seen at the United Center in years!! Man Jordans fadeaway J was so dirty

  • that’s whats up

    I guess this was Big Dog’s one and only career highlight

  • loot

    people need to stop underrating glenn robinson. dude had a pretty good career and was a nasty player. melo is right on track to become his carbon copy.

  • doc

    Big Dog put up numbers Thats whats up.He was the shit until they paired him with AI.The Bulls were so good for so long if they win another chip before every other team in the league it aint fair.This game was tight but it cant compare to the other 2 since they were playoff games.

  • Shogun

    Kobe vs. Beasley is the new Jordan versus G. Robinson.

  • Ludakris

    We reminisce submissions:

    Kobe vs. Sonics… kobe goes off for like 10 3’s (which seem to be all in the span of a few mins)

    Tayshaun prince in college starts off a game with 5 3’s in a row. Each one farther back and the last one he’s standing in the logo at halfcourt. Crazy

    Kobe and jamison both go for 50

    David robinson quadruple double (72 pts too?)

    Kobe’s 81 or 61 in 3 quarters

    Lakers 25pt 4th quarter comeback vs. Dallas.

    Michael jordan “shoulder shrug” game vs. Portland.

    Hakeem murdering david robinson after he got his mvp trophy.

    Reggie’s 8pts in 8 seconds.

    Magic johnson’s rookie yr, filling in at center in the finals finishing with 42 and a triple double

    Was that the Pistons coach getting dunked on at the 4 minute mark? He better keep Sheed from checking this sight.

  • http://www.myspace.com/verbose1 sans

    He’d have the whole team laughing at him in a minute.

  • doc

    Mike probaly dunked on every vet on they team before so the laughed wouldnt last that long.
